Local students, Dollars for Scholars benefit from partnership with search company

Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars® is pleased to announce that students in the Cambridge-Isanti School District can take advantage of a new partnership between Scholarship America®, the parent organization to Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars, and Fastweb, the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information owned by Monster Worldwide, Inc., parent company of Monster.com.

As a result, all students who create a profile through Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars’ website (ci.dollarsforscholars.org) will be able to opt in and match their data with roughly 1.5 million other scholarship listings from Fastweb. Up to this point, matches were limited to scholarships from Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars and other Scholarship America programs.

“The new partnership between Scholarship America and Fastweb is literally a million-scholarship upgrade for local students,” said Ray Hoheisel, Dollars for Scholars president. “Students who fill out just one profile through our website will be matched not only to our chapter opportunities for scholarships, but to every eligible opportunity through Fastweb’s database. We’re thrilled to have a ‘one-stop shop’ for Cambridge-Isanti students to use for their scholarship search and application.”

Students who are interested in postsecondary scholarship opportunities are encouraged to visit ci.dollarsforscholars.org to complete their student profile and be matched to scholarships on the local and national level.
